    My sincere sympathy to the family. Joyce and I worked together at the Waupun Clinic for many yrs. We sat side by side for 5 days a week . I enjoyed our many conversations and shall treasure the many memories of those days together. I recently visited her at the Nursing Home. She was frail and unable to speak but she squeezed my hand tightly. I shall always remember that moment. May she rest in peace.
